Looking back at the golden age of Maredsous Abbey, where Lampecco studied ceramics, we are reexploring with him the Maredsous school founded in 1903, which was from 1939 until the mid-1960s one of the excellence center for applied arts in Belgium, especially when speaking about training artists rather than craftsmen in the field of silversmithing and ceramics. Many of the masterpieces coming from Maredsous have been revealed to the public at the Expo 58 in Brussels.
The work was made with « ostrich eggshell » and « bodiless lacquer ». Both materials deliver totally different imaginative lacquer effects.

The designer developed a new trumpet-inspired glassblowing pipe which enables the craftsman to shape the inner cavities of the glass. Applying several valves at the top of the pipe, the glassblower creates a variety of air chambers inside the glass instead of having only one using the conventional pipe. The separated spaces inside the glass make for multiple light refractions. By applying colors on each chamber these refractions create a chromatic mingle. At times deceiving the perception.This project is ongoing and can be understood as a study of light and color in glass, using the tool innovation from A Strange Symphony.
